Great Wolf Lodge waterpark resort takes big step toward opening Houston-area location

The Houston area is a big step closer to getting a Great Wolf Lodge indoor waterpark after the city of Webster last month signed a purchase and sale agreement with Chicago-based Great Wolf Resorts for an approximately 30-acre property.

The contract, which lists the purchase price as $2 million, spells out exact conditions for the development, located east of the Gulf Freeway (Interstate 45), just south of the NASA Bypass adjacent to a Topgolf. It requires the buyer to build a “family resort and waterpark” with at least 400,000 square feet of entertainment and lodging space, including 75,000 square feet or more for an indoor waterpark and at least 10,000 square feet for an indoor convention center facility. It must also contain retail, restaurants and children’s amenities.

Construction must start by April 30, 2025, and be completed within the following three years.

"The project, known as FlyWay Webster, will encompass 120 acres and is set to break ground later this year, after beginning infrastructure construction over the last year."

A small update regarding Great Wolf Lodge in today's Biz Buzz column in the Galveston County Daily News. This is coming soon to the mixed-use development FlyWay in Webster. 


"As more businesses move into League City, there’s one that got away. Dirt is turning at the 35-acre site of Great Wolf Lodge, just behind the American Furniture Warehouse, 21501 Gulf Freeway in Harris County.

The resort and waterpark, the second such in the state, will encompass at least 400,000 square feet of entertainment and lodging space with at least 75,000 square feet for the waterpark, plus 10,000 square feet for an indoor convention center facility."




A possible reason Great Wolf Lodge selected Webster over League City:

"League City was a strong contender for the development, which aligns with the city’s efforts to create more tourist destinations. League City officials even traveled to Chicago, where Great Wolf Lodge is headquartered, to meet with corporate representatives about the development. What it boiled down to is Webster offered generous incentives — the exact figure wasn’t immediately available — while League City offered none."

Also renderings are located in the brochure for the same development in the link below. It's labeled as Marina Walk at Clear Creek.

Seems odd that this big development would go in right next to a massive tank farm with (I assume) multiple pipeline terminus’ just across the fence line to the north/northeast.

Oh well.  I’m sure the tank farm has been in planning for a lot longer than this, so at least it wasn’t an unknown.
